I’m An Air Conditioned Nation

The Roc

The Roc

Well, here it is. After much soul searching and figuring, I have decided to finance a car, for the first time in my life.

This is my new transportation, a 2014 Ford Fiesta SE Hatchback, which I bought from Enterprise Car Sales.  A little more than half of the purchase price is coming from the check that I finally got for my last car, which the insurance company decided to total out.

I have named her The Roc, after Lorq VonRay’s yacht in Samuel Delany’s Nova. She’s a very responsive car, a lot of fun to drive, and full of all kinds of bells and whistles.

I’m kind of sweating having car payments, plus having to pay for comprehensive coverage rather than the straight liability that I usually get.  Still, I think I can handle it.

So… now that’s taken care of, hopefully I’ll be able to relax enough to get back to writing.
